Delightful small Hosta. Small green heart shaped leaves may not exactly set the world alight, but when it flowers this is a bit different. It has lovely pure white tubular blooms, quite large in scale compared to the leaves. Makes a lovely little alpine plant and good in a well drained container with other small and miniature Hostas. It would seem to be a Hosta venusta seedling, but its provenance is a little clouded by the mists of time, it was registered in 1982.
Hosta ‘Ballerina’. A small Hosta with green heart-shaped leaves and unexpectedly large pure white tubular flowers.
All Hostas need some shade and few will thrive in open strong sunlight. A general rule is that the lighter foliage, the brighter the sunlight that will be tolerated. Variegated varieties tend to require more sun to keep their white, light green or gold stripes. The darker, bluer varieties need more shade.
Once established, Hostas are pretty tough and will spread horizontally to make excellent ground cover.
Grown for their decorative foliage. Form large clumps that are excellent for ground cover. Attracts humming birds in suitable geographical locations.
